For the Love of Film #2 -- June 9, 2010

This post is a follow-up to For the Love of Film, The Film Preservation Blogathon., which was hosted by Ferdy on Films ( and The Self-Styled Siren (
Participants and visitors to the blogathon donated $13,500 to the National Film Preservation Foundation. The NFPF is going to use that money to preserve two western movies from a trove of American films recently discovered in New Zealand. "The Better Man" is a 1912 Vitagraph production. "The Sergeant" is a 1910 Selig Polyscope production, shot in the Yosemite Valley when the park was managed by the Army. The blogathon will get a credit in the titles of each movie.
I can't wait.
